Recent World Series of Poker Circuit Horseshoe Hammond main event champion Soheb Porbanderwala now has more than $955,000 in recorded WSOPC cashes, which leaves him just a bit shy of making the top 10 on the tour’s all-time earnings list.

The only player with multiple millions in WSOPC cashes is 15-time ring winner Maurice Hawkins. The former title leader for the tour retains the top spot on this leaderboard thanks to his nearly $2.5 million in scores accrued across 148 in-the-money finishes in ring events. While he is no longer the tour’s title leader, thanks to Ari Engel’s recent spree that has increased his ring count to a record 17, Hawkins is still tied for second on that list with fellow 15-time winners Daniel Lowery and Joshua Reichard.

Hawkins has recorded five six-figure scores on the tour, with his largest being a $279,722 payday earned as the champion of the 2016 Harrah’s Cherokee main event. In late February he made the same final table yet again, this time finishing third for another $178,870.

Although he leads the ring chase, Engel just cracked the top 10 list for earnings with nearly $1.1 million.

As for Lowery, he is the tour’s second-highest-earning player ever with more than $1.8 million in career cashes. Like Hawkins, Lowery’s top score came in a WSOPC main event win. He took home $258,784 as the 2017 WSOPC Choctaw champion, just one of five six-figure scores he has secured in ring events. His 155 total tour cashes are the sixth-most of any player.

Kyle Cartwright rounds out the top three. The nine-time ring winner has accrued nearly $1.6 million across 65 Circuit cashes.

Six-time bracelet winner and three-time ring winner Chris Ferguson still sits in fourth place with almost $1.4 million in cashes, despite the fact that he only has one in-the-money finish (a $2,947 min-cash) since 2008. ♠
